Today I read on the website of Dpreview about a new law that will discussed the 9th of July in Eur. Parlement, about copyright of buildings in Europe. As you maybe know the Eiffeltower is already under copyright for night photos. But now it goes further.

There is a petition going on about this:

Thanks.

I find it hard to imagine how such rules could be monitored, are they going to sue for taking a photo where some building is on the background and one shares that with friends in Facebook, or a biker who catches glimpses of all the buildings in the city while riding with a GoPro and puts that on Youtube?

Thanks to all the signatures, the proposal for copyright on photos of buildings has not gone through. The majority of the European Parlement was against it.
